    I got this deal for a MBP with a cracked screen and a keyboard, I'm going to assume the owner put a pen and closed the lid. Anyways I saw a replacement lcd for $150 on ebay plus the keyboard $38. I think I can get the Mac for pretty cheap. My question is, is it safe to replace a broken screen? And, where is the best/cheapest source to get these parts?

    Thanks in advance.

    How much are you paying in the first place for the broken MBP?

    How do you even know you're going to get the Macbook?

    I'm still talking about prices, the Macbook turns on but I can't get video out to a TV. Does this mean the logic board is damaged or anything? And it wasn't a pen as I suspected, some how a golf ball hit the keyboard and bounced to the screen breaking it so I'm assuming the board got hit too. What do you guys think ? I think I can get this for like 200-300. Still I don't want to risk myself buying the parts just to find out the logic board is damaged, since I can't get video-out.
